My only son, Kyle, died as the result of an auto accident. I wanted to die. I did not want to live without him. Little did I know that I wouldn't have to. I soon learned that death is not an end to life, but is a wondrous beginning to a much better spiritual life.
Seventeen years have passed since that dreadful day in 1996 when my life was shattered. But the many, many blessings that began coming my way awakened me to a world I would never have thought possible. Not only did I grow spiritually from within, but also my need to help others began taking over my life. I sought ways to spread the truth that my son still lives.
The world-renowned psychic-medium, John Edward has given me messages from Kyle on seven different occasions. Without any doubt, John is the one person most responsible for allowing my husband and me to know that Kyle is okay and in turn enable us to find happiness again. I will forever be grateful to John for his gift.
Appearing on television, speaking over the radio, conducting grief workshops, and meeting with parents whose children had died were not things I was accustomed to doing.
"Quit Kissing My Ashes" is the culmination of a loving son's determination to comfort not only his family, but also the many friends he left behind. Because of the positive feedback from many grieving parents, Kyle, to this day, continues to help others for which I feel truly blessed.
Judy has retired from her profession as a schoolteacher in Baton Rouge, LA where Judy believes her special-needs students taught her more than she taught them! What special and loving souls God has given these children.
Judy currently resides on Lake D'Arbonne in northern Louisiana with her husband of 52 years, Jim. And to think that Judy bet she would marry Jim, without having ever met him...only seeing his photo!
Judy and Jim have three children: Jill, Jamie and Kyle and are blessed to have ten grandchildren.
I spend my spare time (it seems I had more when I was working!) gardening, looking for bargains at garage sales, shopping on Ebay for goodies for my kids and grandkids and tending to my many pets. My favorite at the moment is a baby Hooded Merganser duck which was abandoned by it's mother. I spend a bunch of my retirement money buying crickets and live mealworms to make "Hoodie" happy.
I love football season and pulling for my LSU Tigers. Jim coached at LSU for 15 years, played at Arkansas and also professionally with the Giants and Redskins, so we pull for a lot of teams!
I feel truly blessed for all that my son has done to continue to help me. Before Kyle died I did not believe in after death communication and I thought psychics were a scam. So I understand that others are skeptical. But, I KNOW, without any doubt, that death is not an end and that our loved ones who have died continue on with their consciousness and are aware of all that we do and they want to let us know that they still exist, are happy in the spiritual world, and that we will be together again.
Kyle was cremated and after his death he told me, "Quit kissing my ashes. I'm not in there!" I was kissing his ashes every morning and every night.. Because I know that he knows what I do, I want you to know that I haven't kissed his ashes since his message to me.
My wish is that Kyle's story will bring you comfort throughout your life.
